Teaser Tuesday, 22 September: The Man Who Loved Books Too Much

teaser-tuesdayIt’s that time of week again for Should Be Reading’s fun meme Teaser Tuesdays.

So how does this work:

  • Grab your current book
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

The Man Who Loved BooksToday I am teasing you with Allison Hoover Bartlett’s new book The Man Who Loved Books Too Much.
Whenever I have asked Gilkey to describe the allure books have for him, he struggles, but ultimately settles on the aesthetic. ‘It’s a visual thing, the way they look, all lined up on the shelf.’” Pg. 74

Thanks to the publisher for sending me an ARC of this book.

What’s your tease for this Tuesday?
